“To have met Gary Old­man is to be all the more im­pressed with his Churchill,” says the film writer of this month’s cover star, who plays the wartime leader in Dark­est

Hour. “In per­son, Old­man is shy, dry and just a touch

sly, the kind of work­ing­class south Lon­doner who voted Win­ston out in 1945.” Thom­son is the au­thor, most re­cently, of Warner Bros: The Mak­ing of an Amer­i­can Movie Stu­dio

(Yale Uni­ver­sity Press).
